Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Lost And Found

Looking through my desk for errant items, I always open up one drawer in particular. It’s dumb because I know exactly what is in that drawer as it is the same thing that has been in there for year: my defunct Circle of Orboros army from back when I attempted to learn Hordes/Warmachine.

Non-Photo Friday: Infinity Mission 2

I’m not quite done with my photo for the week but I did have a quick Infinity night cap after our second Frostgrave session.

Frostgrave Winter Campaign: Session 2

As I’ve been discussing off and on over the last few weeks, our Frostgrave bands were set to explore a vast underground library. This scenario is actually a slight variation of the core rules “The Library” with a mix of “A Haunted House.” I wanted to get in some fun monsters and the Wraiths served well as ancient librarians trying to keep their sanctuary free from plunder.

Weekend Update

This weekend turned out to be pretty busy as I pulled a double session with Frostgrave in my new library maze and then a quick follow-up game of Infinity.

Photo Friday: Books, Check ’em Out

With my Frostgrave maze walls complete, I was still missing a major component to the library, namely, books. It might be disastrous to start this off in meme but here we go!

Frostgrave: The A-MAZE-ing… Oh Never Mind

Ok, some kid game humor with some bad dad joke flavor mixed in. But! I did want to talk about the new maze I made. We have Frostgrave Friday coming up this week and we’ll be journeying once again into the frozen wastes, this time to The Haunted Library…

Infinity Yu Jing: Red Veil

After my color scheme was finalized, I got to work painting up the first few models and made some good progress. It took some time settling on a color to match what I produced on the screen but I got something that was close enough using Army Painter’s Lava Orange with a healthy does of GW’s Agrax Earthshade wash.

Photo Friday: Han’s Luck

With the announcement by Restoration Games that they are remaking Star Wars: Epic Duels, the classic Hasbro skirmish game, I thought I’d break out that old standby and reminisce a little.

Much like Han’s luck above, the Star Wars aspect of the Epic Duels reboot is out. Unmatched will update the rules and game play but also feature more eclectic character sources like Sinbad or Robin Hood. Licensed characters are due to follow as well with some interesting choices like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bruce Lee. Make no mistake that I’ll be all over this at the release at Gen Con this year.

Color Schemin’

With my first intro game of Infinity under my belt, it was time to start painting up some minis but I really struggled to figure out my army colors. I’m playing Yu Jing but yellow just isn’t my color. Nothing wrong with it but it’s not a color I want to paint with all the time or play with. Red is usually my goto but Infinity has a major faction, the Nomads, that studio paint typically red. And my friend already has his Nomads red and I don’t want to confuse things.

Lucky for me, Corvus Belli released concept art of the figures in an easy illustrated style that I can quickly mess with in Photoshop to see what I like.

A Journey Through The Infinite

I posted this on Instagram last week (@pimpmyboardgame) but was actually able to play a little bit of Infinity this weekend.

My friend has been talking about trying to start up Infinity for over a year when he picked up the starter Operation Ice Storm. I’ve been wanting to get a little sci-fi skirmish game going, having considered MERCS first, and finally settled on Infinity due to all the good press and spectacular models.
